We have suffered from 'spam' to email addresses we have published in the past, but then, hasn't everyone!
On the other hand, we very much enjoy receiving comments and new information, so this contact address is an approach to having the best of both worlds. It is a disposable email address. If spam is sent to it, we simply throw it away and use another one. However, this means that if you make a note of the address and use it later, you may be informed that the post box is closed. In that event, you should come back to our site and use the current address.
If this approach to a real problem interests you, visit spamex.com for more information.
